GSoC 2011 - Start your engines!

XB-70A #1 liftoff with TB-58A chase aircraft


It is time, right now, developers, and students -- craft your ideas for Google Summer of Code! Students, please drop into the IRC channels of the projects you are interested to work with, and talk about your ideas. Write to the project list, if you get no-one to talk to in IRC.

Developers, please add plenty of ideas as soon as you can: http://community.kde.org/GSoC/2011/Ideas. Students are already waiting, so the sooner your ideas are on the page the better. Make yourself available to the students, and help them get ready to do a successful project this summer. Consider mentoring or co-mentoring; it can be a great experience.

In case you are new to GSoC in KDE please check http://community.kde.org/GSoC.

Mentors: An excellent resource for both new mentors and those who've done it before: http://www.booki.cc/gsoc-mentoring/

For questions please contact the admins (lfranchi, valorie, neverendingo and nightrose) in #kde-soc. If you want to help with the organization please let us know.
